Donate Textbooks ::: Harvest of Hope Foundation ::: www.harvestofhope.net

Textbooks, Course Books, Prep Books

On behalf of the Harvest of Hope Foundation, we would like to invite you to partner with us during our Textbook Donation Campaign starting Fall 2011 through to May 2012. During the campaign, we’re seeking donations of new/used textbooks, prep books, and graphic calculators.

Why are we collecting Textbooks?

The Harvest of Hope Foundation is seeking socially minded individuals and motivated student/professional organizations to help collect used/new textbooks in your local area or on your college campus. The books will be listed on our Amazon.com web store and resold. All proceedes will go to the nonprofit Harvest of Hope Foundation.

Why get involved?

Stand in solidarity with the community nonprofit Harvest of Hope Foundation by showcasing your organization’s support for the men, women and children who harvest the fruits and vegetables we all eat to sustain the life we live. Migrant farm workers and their families constantly relocate to follow the planting or harvest of the next seasonal crop. Most of these families are second and third generation migrant families. These families are usually very poor, are not seen, not heard, and often not helped.

What is the Harvest of Hope Foundation?

Located in Gainesville, Florida, The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a unique non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that has been providing migrant farm workers and their families with emergency relief and financial assistance for over 15 years. As of November 1, 2011 the Foundation has distributed more than $910,000 in aid. For more about the Harvest of Hope, visit us at www.harvestofhope.net.

We hope we can further our partnership and we look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us at info@harvestofhope.net.

Donate Gently Used/New Shoes and Footwear ::: Harvest of Hope Foundation ::: www.harvestofhope.net

Sizes 6-9 greatly needed!

This year the Harvest of Hope Foundation of Gainesville, Florida has distributed more than 1,200 pairs of donated gently used and new shoes and sneakers to migrant programs around the country to give to migrant farm workers and families

If you have gently used shoes that you just don’t wear anymore, here is a chance to recycle them by donating them to hard working migrant farm workers and their families harvesting and producing many of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy daily. They need adequate footwear for field work and often cannot afford to purchase shoes for their children. We accept all sizes but sizes 6-9 are preferred.

Migrant Farm Workers ::: About Harvest of Hope Foundation ::: Seasonal Farm Workers

In honor and memory of his grandmother, Dr. Helen Zand, who was a social worker for the poor, Phil Kellerman established the Harvest of Hope Foundation in 1997 to raise private funds to exclusively assist migrant farm workers and their families around the country. Since its initiation, the Harvest of Hope Foundation has distributed
over $1 million dollars for:

  • Emergency aid for vehicle repairs, transportation, housing, utilities, rent, medical services and prescriptions, clothing, food, funerals, and legal costs
  • Educational assistance to migrant students attending college and post-secondary institutions, including help with tuition, board and books
  • Grants to health and other support service agencies and organizations serving migrant farm workers

Federal, state and local aid to migrant farm workers is limited and often not available at all. Many Americans know so little of the agricultural, economic and cultural contributions of migrant farm workers who harvest a large share of our nation’s fruits, vegetables and other foods. The goals of Harvest of Hope are to open the eyes of individuals to the hard work and struggles of our nation’s migrant laborers while filling in some of the gaps in service to this population via emergency and educational aid. Please review the attached list of recent aid provided by the Foundation and a list of funds housed under the foundation.

The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization and its federal identification number is 16-1523238.

For more information about our organization, please contact us at 352-372-1312, or by email at info@harvestofhope.net.

The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a public, non-profit agency governed by a Board of Directors who subscribe to the mission and values of the Harvest of Hope Foundation. [read more]
